Mid-Inning Relief — The Nineteenth One: Breaking Down The Front Office Shake-Up

It’s the penultimate episode of the season! In Ep. 19, Marty Lurie, Carmen Kiew, and Ally Williams welcome Bonnie-Jill Laflin (@BJLaflin on Twitter) to the podcast! Bonnie-Jill is the first and only female NBA scout, a former Warriors, Niners, and Cowboys Cheerleader, and the newest co-host of Murph and Mac in the morning on KNBR.

The four discuss Bobby Evans’ departure and front office shake-up, season schedules, and MLB’s fines and punishments for Carlos Gomez’s Periscope, as opposed to the Twitter storm of old offensive tweets that surfaced this season. They also share their favorite quirks about AT&T Park and their picks for this year’s Willie Mac Award winner. Finally, in light of Hunter Pence’s recent offensive surge, and the news that he’ll head to winter ball this offseason: should the San Francisco Giants re-sign the beloved veteran?
